Cool listening task!!!
My friends and I have gone camping recently. Fresh air, fast flowing estuary and breathtaking view of the site was gorgeous. There was not a camp but a small hut where we rented. Trip was amasing. Lots of snapshots were taken. We had a wonderful three-day trip.

Yes, I love to camping because there would be many group participation games if I went with my classmate. It would be fun. I prefer to stay youth hostel when I'm on vacation since I can save more money to buy some local crafts.

Hi When are the new episodes coming out.....Come on....I´m curious!!!!!

Hi mariuaguilarelearning,

I'm afraid we don't have a solid plan for the next episodes yet. I'm sorry not to be able to tell you anything more specific.

What I can say is that we will be releasing a lot of new materials in our Reading, Writing and Listening skills sections over the next months and into next year, so please keep an eye on those sections.

All the best,

Yes, I like camping! Mostly I like to stay near the river or lake.

My thanks to the guys who filmed these episodes.

No, I don't like camping, I prefer hotel.

Hi Kirk, Tell me please why Sammy said "I go there a lot", instead "I have been there...", "I was..."? After all, he was there in the past, about 10 years ago.

Hi Al,

It would be more accurate for Sammy to say 'I have been there a lot' or even 'I was there 10 years ago' since, as you point out, it's been 10 years since he was last there. I suppose Sammy uses the present simple instead because he either feels that it wasn't long ago that he went there or because he's trying to show a confident face to Julia. It sounds like you've understood the essential differences between the tenses, which is the most important thing!

Hi Kirk,

All the best,
